A biography on Will Hay - which was satisfactory and Mae West's autobiography (which would most certainly fall into the fiction category!)

I have self-help books too - I am browsing Hot Sex by Tracy Cox... and I dip in and out of Mind Gym books and Wiseman's Think a Little Live a Lot (or soemthing like that).

I am, at present, without a book to actually read. I will find one out tomorrow.

Oh my goodness, I loved Lamott's "Plan B"! When my sis was visiting me a few weeks back, I sort of forced it on her, and once she got going, she kept reading me LONG passages from it....it speaks to our lives for sure, and Lamott is SO funny and wise. I'm waiting for "Hornet's Nest" at the library.

One of my discoveries this summer has been David Mitchell. I'm on the second half of "Ghostwritten" right now. What a novelist he is, esp. if you like textured, old-fashioned storytelling about extremely WEIRD, convoluted, spooky subjects. It's been ages since a book kept me up most of the night.

Still on my reading list:

Plan B: Further thoughts on Faith - Anne Lamott

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson

Reaper Man (in progress) and Thief of Time - Terry Pratchett

Maximum Ride - James Patterson

I've been reading sections of my dad's Bible a lot, doing research for a couple projects I'm involved with at church (Healing and Wholeness, Scripture by Heart).

We're halfway through summer, and I am curious to know which books are (or have been) on your summer reading list?
